Steve Sarkisian officially named USC head coach

USC has officially named Steve Sarkisian its new head coach.

The statement from USC athletic director Pat Haden:

“We are delighted to welcome Steve Sarkisian back to the Trojan Family. We conducted a very exhaustive and thorough search, pinpointing about 20 candidates and interviewing five of them. We kept coming back to Sark. He is the only one who was offered the job. I believe in my gut that he is the right coach for USC at this time.

“He embodies many of the qualities for which we looked. He is an innovative coach who recruits well and develops players. He is a proven and successful leader. He connects with people. He has energy and passion. He knows how to build a program and create a culture that we value. He is committed to academic success and rules compliance. And he understands the heritage and tradition of USC.”
